Find MS Care, Resources and Support

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a disease that affects the central nervous system. In the United States alone, it’s estimated that over one million people have MS. Symptoms can vary from patient to patient, meaning MS can look different for everyone.

Those at risk for MS may:

  • Experience symptoms like numbness, tremors, or vision issues
  • Have a family history of MS
  • Be between 20 and 40 years of age

We work with your primary care doctor to fully understand your health history, deliver an accurate diagnosis and create a treatment plan to fit your care needs and preferences.
